OK, so I haven't exactly been keeping up on my blog for various reasons. And my stop motion has, well, stopped. I guess this blog post is going to be about why I cant shine as an artist.
So for the time being my stop motion is not underway anymore. I will resume production and I think I have a way I want to continue it without doing any more filming, but enough about that.
I have had a lot of ideas, and not much to show for them. I think part of my problem is my lack of skill. I have ideas that are very cool and very vivid, but only seem to come to life inside my head. My lack of skill and knowledge means I can have an idea but when I try to create it, it doesn't look quite right. I have experimented in many mediums, and I have enjoyed all of them. But it seems when I get a really good idea I never create that idea like I pictured. And I have an issue focusing and working on an idea. When I get a vision, I want it NOW! I get sidetracked and get bored. and most of all, I get more ideas. I have ADHD, so I get rapid thoughts and ideas. So while focusing on one thing I will get another cool idea and go towards that, abandoning my current project. If I could only complete a project without thinking about "whats next". once I learn to do this I think I will be able to do thinks much more interesting than I currently do. But for now, I need to work on finding out WHAT I want to do. Claymation, pen and pencil art, Photoshop, you name it.
